Riverside Bank, A Division of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company Partners With Score to Bring You a Free Seminar About Simple Steps for Growing Your Business

May 29, 2015

The Riverside Division of Salisbury Bank and the Dutchess County Chapter of SCORE are partnering to offer a free seminar to discuss simple steps for growing your business.

Everyone wants to grow their business, but a majority of the time many may experience problems such as these:

  • You’re constantly “putting out fires,” spending all your time dealing with urgent situations or emergencies in your business.

  • You’re working long hours and getting burned out.

  • You’re so busy running your business day-to-day, you don’t have time to grow it.

If these apply to you, don’t be alarmed because this is a common situation for many small business owners. This seminar will help you get past these difficult situations. Attendees will learn how to leverage the cross-industry expertise of seasoned executives to strengthen and grow their business via one-on-one mentoring and counseling from Certified SCORE mentors.

Presenter Al Hechler has been a SCORE mentor for nearly 10 years. He is a retired IBM Project Executive with skills in project management, business planning and marketing. Grant Lewis the other SCORE mentor has been a Certified SCORE mentor for 5 years.  His background includes 18 years of bank marketing and development, as well as 21 years in construction business development and project planning.  For the past 5 years, Grant has been consulting with small business owners and corporate executives.
